Why I Write

· The process & lack there off ·

"I want to expose my experiences, my strengths my weaknesses and my vulnerabilities; my accomplishments and my shortcomings."

About a week ago, God gave me the simple instruction, “Write.”

Instead of asking God, “Write what?” I’ve taken his instruction and I’ve run with it, thinking of any and every writing endeavor I’ve had in my heart, because now is the time to work on these things. Be it songs, scripts, books or this blog, I’ve put my hand to the plow…or fingers to typewriter and the rest will be history.

I’ve had people ask me before…what is your process? And the funny thing is I don’t have one. I figure I will probably develop one the more I create but for the most part I just create what comes out. What astonishes me is that whatever I need is always somewhere inside of me and I’ve grown to be very sure of this.

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38

Take this blog post for example. I’m posting very late because up until now I really had no idea what I was going to write about, but the moment that I sat down, the ideas and the words began to flow.

It kind of reminds me of how God told John what to write down in the book of Revelation or how God used Moses so that he himself could write upon the two tablets…In this moment I am realizing that it’s not uncommon for God to instruct someone to write.

Now I’m not John the Baptist nor am I Moses and this certainly is not the Bible but I do believe that God inspires us all to do things that will ultimately lead others to himself, and I guess that’s why I write.

The things that I share really do come from my heart and from my experiences. I don’t write because I want you to think my website is cool or even so that you’ll complement my writing skills, given, compliments are nice…but ultimately I want to share with you the things that God shares with me and show you the things the God shows me.

I want to expose my experiences, my strengths my weaknesses and my vulnerabilities; my accomplishments and my shortcomings because I very much believe that my stories are your stories too.

….and I think that’s what a writer is supposed to do.

With Love Always

    I love hearing about people’s writing processes. I’m a muller. I brood over posts for hours like a hen gone broody.

    I’ve taken up writing again this year after a few months of gentle nudges. It’s hard, sometimes, but good to be back at creating. 🙂 Good luck with your endeavor!
